Go Green! Reincarnation style

A Swedish company called Promessa Organic AB takes “going green” as literally as possible. Their mantra is to "Go Green when you GO!" And by "go," they mean, ahem, die.

Promessa Organic AB has developed a method where after you die, the corpse is frozen, then dipped in liquid nitrogen which makes it very brittle, then it is zapped with sound waves that shatter it into a powder so the moisture can be vacuumed away. Sexy, I know. What is left can then be put into an eco-friendly container made of corn starch and buried in the ground were you will decompose quickly and ecologically. Check out the video and find out more on how you can “Go” green.
